O Lord, give me the grace to deal with the terrible threes. We didn't have terrible two's, she was tricking me all the while knowing that she was going to throw me a bombshell during her third year!

Today I have been married for nine years! NINE YEARS! Where in the world has the time gone. I have been thinking all morning about what a blessed individual I am. Wow what a marriage. What a love that Michael and I share. What a devotion to one another that can only come from God. I am so priveledged to have a Godly marriage. I am so priveledged to be married to such a wonderful man. He still moves me in a way that only he can. He still captivates my heart with one smile. I still get butterflies when I see him in the morning and in the afternoon. He still owns my heart and soul. Praise the Lord. Not only do we have such a wonderful love, but we have two of the cutest, sweetest kids in the whole world. I always tried to picture what our kids would look like and be like when we first got married. Boy was I off. They are so different than what I imagined, but they are so much better. Praise God for my two precious children and the gift I have of being a wife and mother! Marriage is such a wonderful blessing in so many ways!
